In cancer cases dogs will understandably be weak and tired. The usual playful pet we know and love is gone. Walks in the park are no longer appealing.
Their favorite games or toys are not fun anymore and if they play, it will last only a few seconds. The bundle of energy they once had is now spent so fast that all they want to do is lay quietly and sleep.
We can all recognize that this is NOT normal. Even dogs, who tend to sleep a lot, will enjoy a good game of ‘catch the string’. If even this does nothing to spark interest in a little exercise, there is cause for concern and should be watched carefully.
